Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 154 / Thursday, August 11, 2005 / Notices Control Room Environmental Factors An individual’s sleep pattern is also influenced by external factors. Many control rooms are designed for day workers. In 24-hour pipeline operations, alertness and vigilance on the night shift is equally as important and should be addressed by the operator. Although there are many methods that can be employed to reduce operator fatigue in the control room, PHMSA advises pipeline operators to consider: • Using the available information on control room environments to incorporate environmental measures that reduce fatigue and promote alertness. • Adjusting environmental factors to specifically address the problems associated with night shifts and shift rotation schedules. • Sharing information across the industry on environmental factors in control rooms that can affect fatigue and controller alertness. Training and Education Training and education of both supervisors and controller personnel is critical to the prevention of fatiguerelated pipeline incidents. These efforts can maximize the safety and performance of pipeline control personnel by minimizing the effects of fatigue in shift-work operations. Therefore, PHMSA advises pipeline operators to consider: • Educating controllers and controller supervisors on factors that impact human fatigue. • Training supervisors of controllers to recognize signs of stress and fatigue both on duty and when reporting for duty. • Sharing information across the industry on training of controllers and supervisors on the effects of fatigue on controller alertness and decision making.
